59 / 99....Try Something Artistic You've Never Done Before!

That's  the theme for the first month at the new Challenge Blog


I tried something completely new to me - I tried to paint a face with oil - colors.

  I think I will do it more often in the future to become more familiar with this medium.


 I painted her on an old sheet of music - so she fits also to 

If Music Be The Food Of Love at

Art Journal Journey
and she is for 99 FACES

  10. Super dein erster Ölmalerei-Versuch und der Notenblatt-HG sieht sehr schön aus dazu. Ich hab schon alle Malfarben durch und wüsste nichts Neues, außer etwas malen was ich noch nicht gemalt habe.
    Schönes Wochenende und ganz liebe Grüße.

  14. Just GORGEOUS! Those eyes are so expressive and have such a story behind them. I started say a "story to tell", but maybe she's talking and maybe not. Very intriguing. You must keep up with this new thing, you have a gift!

  15. Beautiful! I would have never guessed this was the first time you painted a face with oils! It's gorgeous! I hope you will continue to do it more often! Thanks so much for joining us at creative Carte Blanche. I hope to see more of your work.

  16. I can't believe this is your first go at oil paints. This is amazing! My daughter is taking a painting class and has just begun exploring oil paints, so I know what a challenging medium this is. I love the colors you've put in the face to give shadow and dimension, and the music note background is perfect for this. Fantastic! I'm so happy you joined in the Creative Carte Blanche challenge.

  17. This is so incredibly different from your other faces, but I really LOVE the look. I have some oil paints, but of course, I've never used them, because they take so long to dry. This is a FANTASTIC first attempt, although I find it hard to believe it's a first.

  18. Susi....she's brilliant! Oh how I love to see the faces that people draw, paint and so forth. And doing her in oils....wow. That is a completely foreign medium to me. I know what a difficult medium it can be to work with; drying time, etc. You did such a lovely job on her! Love the sheet music in the background, too. Thanks so much for sharing her with all of us at Creative Carte Blanche!
